President Obama Takes Another Shot At Hillary Clinton

On Sunday, President Obama sat down with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos for an exit interview before leaving office on January 20th.

Since Hillary Clinton’s stunning election loss, Obama has subtly taken shots at her campaign. In November, Obama said, “You know, I won Iowa not because the demographics dictated that I would win Iowa. It was because I spent 87 days going to every small town and fair and fish fry and VFW hall, and there were some counties where I might have lost, but maybe I lost by 20 points instead of 50 points.”

Stephanopoulos asked the president about the Obama coalition, specifically asking why young voters did not turn out for Clinton in 2016.

“They came out to vote for me, and they came out to vote where that spirit was touched,” Obama told Stephanopoulos. “The next phase…is to make sure I am working with that next generation so that they understand you can’t just rely on inspiration. There’s a little perception involved in bringing about change too.”

Obama concluded by telling Stephanopoulos, “You have to vote even when it’s not exciting.”
